Ok ladies, since yesterday (9/21) I have been having these bladder spasms that are REALLY uncomfortable. I had a Dr's appt today and they sent my urine off to be tested. It comes in waves and lasts about 15 seconds. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, what did you do? I am so uncomfortable. Any help would be great.
I have this and feel its due to the baby's position, like I think she is kicking it. I know the bladder takes a "beating" while we are pregnant. Its basically "crushed" from the ever expanding uterus and depending where the baby is lying, extra weight can be placed there.
Having a urinalysis is a wise move. It will hopefully rule out a uti.
You did the right thing getting tested. This is what women often say when they have a kidney infection. But sometimes it is normal. With all the extra pressure as Tarobinc mentioned both from baby and our uterus it is possible to make it spasm at times.
I get the test results back tomorrow. Still had a rough night last night & this morning so my Dr prescribed something to stop the spasms. I got concerned because they were coming every 2 to three minutes and everything was tightening up. I'm still having them but they are not as intense or frequent. I'll keep you posted on the results.
